A whole town colored gold with the autumn leaves of ginkgo trees
The town of Sobue-cho in the city of Inazawa has over 10,000 trees of gingko biloba, the "icho" tree. Come Autumn, when everyone is talking about the red maple trees, this place is kind of refreshing due to the yellowish tones. The Yusenji Temple is center of the festival celebrating the golden trees, with events also at the nearby Yamazaki Station (of the Meitetsu Bisai Line). Find trees with over 200 years of age, as well as tree branch tunnels and, at night, be amazed by the artificially illuminated spots!
